6:00pm
epidemic is truly well spent. >> reporter: he emphasizes the use of computerized crime stats and also emphasized rebuilding broken relationships between the department and the community but not every one of his policies is popular. you have been a supporter of stop and frisk policies as well as youth curfews. both of which would be highly controversial if not impossible to implement in oakland. would stop and frisk be an answer here? >> for any city to say they don't do stop and frisk, i'm sorry, they don't know what the hell they are talking about. every police department in america does it. the challenge is to do it constitutionally within the law. challenge is to do it compassionately. you're dealing with human beings. and the challenge is to do it consistently so you cannot be accused that you're only doing it in one neighborhood of the city or directed against one population of the city. >> reporter: but already there are people who say if you try that they will fight it tooth and nail. >> reporter: what do they think the average oakland cop is
6:01pm
doing today when he stops somebody for traffic violations, he stops somebody that he has a reasonable suspicion is committing a crime or may be about to commit a crime, thisoff that somehow or another police -- this idea that somehow or another police can't function without it? i'm sorry, any police department in america that tries to function without some for the of stop and frisk or whatever terminology they use is doomed to failure. it's that simple. >> reporter: chief bratton tells me he has a similar contract in detroit and a proposal for yet another contract in another city, baltimore, its new police chief you may recognize his name anthony batts, the former police chief of oakland. the city council will take this up in oakland. there will be opposition in the audience. they are putting it out on twitter trying to get opposition. >> see if it works. thank you, joe. you heard chief bratton talking about it to joe there in the interview. this weekend's violence in oakland. police say they can trace the bulk of it to an escalating
6:02pm
gang war. but cbs reporter phil matier tells us so far, be there -- there are no plans to call in the troops. why not? >> reporter: political and practical. here's the story. i don't believe we have reached that threshold yet. i don't think that the national guard is necessary at this point. reporter: that was oakland police chief howard jordan responding to a call from black ministers this morning at city hall for the crime-ridden city to declare a state of emergency. >> violence, homicide, shootings are out of control. >> reporter: since last friday, 15 people were shot on the streets of oakland four fatally. >> how many more people have to get shot, how many more people have to get killed? >> we have been acting as if it was a state of emergency for a while. each time i have asked for additional highway patrol support. the governor has given it to us. >> reporter: but even with the state help and help from the alameda county sheriffs, the bottom line that it will take years to recover from the massive police layoffs and retirements that has hit the city in recent years. >> meantime, asking the highway patrol, federal help, housing
6:03pm
authority, oakland public schools, the alameda county sheriff will go a long way. >> reporter: chief jordan also said that 80% of the violent crime in the city could be traced to two warring groups. >> we know that there's probably about one to two percent of the population that's causing this violence. and that we're focused on them. >> reporter: newly elected councilman noah gallo says it's time to get tough. >> we have had too many incidents so we need to be more action oriented. >> are you talking curfews? >> whatever tools he needs whether it's a curfew, stop and frisk, we need to deal with it. i need to get the guns out of these people's hands and cars and deal with the issue. >> reporter: that's what they are beginning to do tomorrow as we said earlier when they review the contract to bring in bill bratton -- whether to bring him in, to start with recommendations. but for right now, no state of emergency, in part because it
6:04pm
would be a political embarrassment to declare it publicly out there for it to gnat so they are going to hold the fort as is. >> unfortunately the stakes as we have seen this weekend are way too high to be worried about political posturing at this point. we'll see what happens. phil matier in oakland, thank you. while many bay area cities have seen violent crime go up, a city with a tough reputation has seen a drop. cbs 5 reporter ann notarangelo asks richmond's police captain how did the city pull off such a dramatic turnaround. >> reporter: homicides in richmond have gone down 28% in the last year and it is no accident. it took a deliberate plan. it took time. and, yes, it took money. if you were new to richmond and saw this, you might not know that around 2005, thises of a city under siege. >> we were overwhelmed. crime was really high. people were scared. >> reporter: the city was thinking of declaring a state of emergency. then they decided to make
6:05pm
public safety a priority. >> i think they believe that richmond would not really be able to fully realize its potential, which is really tremendous, if it didn't get a handle on this violent crime problem. >> reporter: city manager bill lindsay committed to fully staffing the police department by hiring 40 new officers. a six to $8 million price tag that certainly came at a cost to other projects and programs. >> i wouldn't know where to start. there are a lot of things that we've given up. >> reporter: the police department changed the way officers patrol the streets. it's no longer enough to not bad guys. they have to get out of their patrol cars and meet the good guys and they can done that because the city is now divided into 40 neighborhood councils that see the same officers year in and year out. captain mark akins says that's key. >> every neighborhood is different and unique. they all have different needs and different desires from the police department. and we actually can meet all their needs when we put the same officers there. >> reporter: technology like shotspotter and cameras help
6:06pm
them identify crimes in progress. they have also identified the 75 people in the city most likely to commit violent crimes and let them know they are being watched. neighborhood watch groups have grown from a dozen to 130 since 2007. >> cleaning up the local neighborhood drug houses on the corner or the park that's on the corner focusing on how do we get rid of the graffiti to dealing with issues of gun violence. >> the street level criminals and the violence crime is no longer ruling the city. it's the community that is. >> reporter: a couple of examples. the iron triangle notorious for its rampant crime had only one violent crime reported last month. and nine of the 18 homicides this year have be solved. >> a 50% closure rate in the same year is a good indication that people are willing to come forward with information. >> reporter: people say what's happening in richmond could be repeated in other. it takes a police department divvying up their cities so
6:07pm
they have small neighborhoods that are more easily patroled by these police officers and then, elizabeth, they have to get the people in the neighborhoods involved. >> right. the community has to cooperate. thank you, ann notarangelo. right now pg&e crews are in larkspur where a 150-foot tree fell down. that redwood hit utility lines and smashed into a house across the street. one person in the house at the time was not injured. about 70 customers though lost power. crews are still working to restore power to 30 of them. officials believe root decay weakened the big tree. freezing temperatures caused slick commutes and are blamed for this gnarly crash in the east bay. police say a car hit a patch of black ice near the claremont resort in berkeley then lost control and set off the chain ee action crash. >> second vehicle comes down shortly thereafter, strikes the first vehicle as they are assessing damage, third vehicle comes down hits second vehicle,
6:08pm
and we have a dog pile through vehicle number 5. >> no one was hurt. police are looking into how the ice built up in that one section of the road. we are live with our brand- new one of a kind mobile weather lab. we'll learn more about the lab in a little bit but first paul deanno explains another cold night is on the way. >> reporter: it's another cold night out there. it is very, very chilly outside. for some of you this will be the sixth consecutive night with a frost advisory or freeze warning. standing in front of the cbs 5 mobile weather lab more on that in a second. first frost advisories again near the bay and also talking about a freeze warning for you in the north bay. santa rosa, san rafael, mill valley for you inland valleys walnut creek and danville and concord. freeze warning for the sixth night. lows tonight san jose back down to the freezing mark 29 for napa, 28 livermore, and 32 for

the actress' body may have occurred before she entered the water not after. that raises a big question: was she pushed? wood's husband robert wagner and actor christopher walken were also on the boat at the time. >> there are questions as to whether these are defense wounds or not. are they or are they not? we should clearly determine that. >> coroner's office completed the report back in june but it was just made public today. sheriff's department says the case remains open but neither wagner nor walken are considered suspects. apple shares are currently trading at their lowest level in almost a year after reports that demand for the iphone 5 is slowing down. according to the "wall street journal," apple cut back on orders for iphone 5 screens. that suggests apple was expecting stronger demand. its shares went down almost 4% today. apple hasn't commented on the story. but the company has been facing stiff competition from android

6:31pm
the city, the richmond district. >> we were working together, you know, to streamline our resources and to make sure that if an event like this happens, that we have enough -- as much preplanned response as possible because the scene will be chaos. >> reporter: why the richmond district? this is where the schools are. there are over 20 public schools in this direct alone in san francisco and this is where they chose to start. washington high has 1800 students. add two parents to every student and we're talking more than 5,000 people at the school and the idea is to have everyone on the same page texting and e-mailing parents when something happens. >> nobody wants another sandy hook. >> reporter: reporting from san francisco, patrick sedillo cbs 5. former president george h.w. bush is back home tonight. he was released from a houston hospital today. he spent nearly two months being treated for a bronchitis- related cough and other health issues. the former president is 88

6:33pm
budget showdowns the white house and congress face in the coming months. house speaker john boehner said if lawmakers don't tackle the debt and spending at the same time it will cost jobs. in a statement, senate majority leader mitch mcconnell said the president and his allies need to get serious about spending. president obama also addressed the possibility of new gun legislation. >> if there is a step we can take that will save even one child from from what happened in newtown, we should take that step. >> reporter: the president has seen recommendations from vice president joe biden's gun violence task force and plans to lay out action he will take to curb gun violence later this week. danielle nottingham, cbs news, the white house. if your boss offered you more money would you refuse? why a bay area fire chief denied a pay raise. >> and how berries can help women fight heart disease. good evening to you,

if you have copd like me you know it can be hard to breathe, and how that feels. copd includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema. spiriva helps control my copd symptoms by keeping my airways open for 24 hours. plus, it reduces copd flare-ups. spiriva is the only once-daily inhaled copd maintenance treatment that does both. spiriva handihaler tiotropium bromide inhalation powder does not replace fast-acting inhalers for sudden symptoms. tell your doctor if you have kidney problems, glaucoma, trouble urinating, or an enlarged prostate. these may worsen with spiriva. discuss all medicines you take, even eye drops. stop taking spiriva and seek immediate medical help if your breathing suddenly worsens your throat or tongue swells, you get hives, vision changes or eye pain or problems passing urine. other side effects include dry mouth and constipation.

6:37pm
it's a story about dollars and cents and a guy who said no. >> people have called and said that that's really gracious noble thing to do. that's not why i did it. it's just kind of seemed like the right thing. >> reporter: thomas roach has been the marinwood fire chief for eight years a firefighter in the district for 25, and he gets paid about a third less than most fire chiefs in the area, a fact that is not lost on him. >> my family's here. my kids have been able to grow up around the fire station. so, you know, that to me was always worth a lot more than being able to make more money elsewhere. >> reporter: and how is his salary in comparison to other fire chiefs in the area? it's on the low side, right? >> considerably lower than any others i think in the county. >> reporter: so when the district wanted to give him a 5% raise on his $105,000 salary, you would think he would take it. but he didn't. >> no. i couldn't do it. i mean, all the employees in the district park, recreation, fire, everyone's working real hard, you know, putting in as much time and effort as i am and they all had to do those concessions
6:38pm
also. so it just seemed like the right thing to do. >> reporter: it has won him respect in the community where he grew up and among the men who work for him. so what did you think when he turned down the pay raise? he tried not to make a big deal out of it. >> i didn't know about it until i saw it in the news the next day. >> reporter: would you have stopped talking to him if he had taken the raise? >> no. he could order me to talk to him. [ laughter ] >> i wouldn't have a choice. >> maybe when things get a little rozier for the district we can all get a pay raise. >> reporter: let's hope. >> reporter: in marinwood, grace lee, cbs 5. in healthwatch, doctors say berries could offer big benefits to your heart. harvard researchers followed about 100,000 women for nearly 20 years. and they found that those who ate several serves of blueberries and strawberries every week actually lowered their chances of a heart attack by a third.
6:39pm
>> this class of foods helps to dilate the arteries and reduce inflammation in the arteries. therefore, reducing heart attack rates. >> all right. blueberries, strawberries, have high levels of a natural compound called flavonoids which can also be found in grapes and wine and other fruits and vegetables and researchers say, they focused on blueberries and strawberries because they are the most eaten berries in the united states. there's a good chance you have it on your computer. tonight, the program homeland security says you should disable. >> and good evening to you, i'm meteorologist paul deanno. if you are heading out for that after dinner jog, bundle up. but soon in the forecast a return to the 60s. i'll let you know when coming up. sports fans, can you name the four coaches who made it to their second straight conference championships in their first two years? i'm dennis o'donnell and the kapper had a near perfect night. we'll explain why his head coach has a few plays he would
